OG&E says customers should expect circulating and controlled power outages

OG&E officials assured KOCO 5 that the controlled outages are currently being paused, however, the situation is fluid and can be resumed at any time. Deputy Energy and Environment Secretary Carly Cordell told Dillon Richards of KOCO 5 that the Oklahoma Corporation and utility companies that have now withdrawn Southwest Power Ball from a Level 3 emergency alert, OG&E officials said first that people should expect that they will lose energy for an hour Over the next few days, maybe several times. This is in order to preserve the integrity of the power grid and avoid a situation in which the grid is flooded and leads to massive regional blackouts, officials said. Southwest Power Pool, a power grid operator in a region covering 14 central US states, directed member energy companies, including those in Oklahoma, to implement controlled outages amid an “unprecedented event” that strained the power grid and depleted spare capacity. “After announcing Energy Emergency Alert Level 3 at 10:08 AM this morning, and having exhausted all other options to ensure continued reliability of the regional network, SPP is directing member facilities to effectively implement controlled outages of service immediately.” He said in a statement on Twitter. According to Edmond city officials, Southwest Power Pool later lowered the power emergency alert to Level 2. There is a possibility to go back to Level 3 as temperatures drop Monday night and in the morning, so officials are asking everyone to do everything they can to conserve energy. Officials said the announcement of the power emergency warnings was due to several factors caused by extremely cold and prolonged weather. These factors include, but are not limited to, high electricity use across the entire SPP system and limited availability of wind power and natural gas. OG&E urges its customers to reduce their electricity use. Customers can help by taking conservation steps such as: setting thermostats to a lower level than usual, if there are sanitary permits, postponing the use of major electrical appliances such as stoves, dishwashers and clothes dryers until midday or after 9 pm when the demand for electricity is low. Turn off light bulbs and appliances. Don’t need or don’t use it. Companies should reduce their use of electric lighting and consuming equipment as much as possible Big electricity consumers should consider stopping or reducing non-essential production processes This is an evolving story.
